Marshall's Dun Eideann First Edition

Junior Dog

1st: Morris's Cassencarrie Rumour Has It at Pennywave

Lovely headed youngster, good dome over forehead, eye to drown in, neatly set ears, OK in front, well bodied with typical topline, well muscled quarters, nicely carried tail, moved OK but grass a little long for him. Super coat.

Postgraduate Dog

1st: Knapper's Maganbar Applejack

Little small in head and the lack of head furnishings accentuated this. Good muzzle to skull ratio, super weaselly body and correct topline, neat quarters, well set tail, sound moving, outmoved the opposition to take RCC.

2nd: Bromley's Mishahda Volcanic Storm

Better in head and well put down, front not quite as tight as 1 and he was certainly not putting all in on the move and I gave him plenty of chances. In good coat, lovely outline, will no doubt have better days.

3rd: Sleight's Cassencarrie Bobby Vee

Limit Dog

1st: Shore's Swanwillow Sea Captain

Hard and very fit, liked his head and dark pigment, especially round his lovely eyes. OK in front, excellent bone and tidy feet. Coat a bit over the top but hard enough. Powerful well made quarters, well carried tail, best mover in class.

2nd: Hunter's Etsill Scapa Flow

Not the front of 1 and elbows standing away from the chest wall. Outline in profile is super, keeps it on the move, in good hard back coat. Would like more tan on legs and feet but is a good honest sort with much to recommend.

3rd: Hansford's Cassencarrie Bonnie Lad
Res: Smethurst's Dawsholm Dapper Davoc

Open Dog

1st: Skitt & Jones's Ch. Vistca Vincent

Nice sound dog, well muscled and conditioned, pleasing head, neck running into correct topline, good slope over croup, well bent stifles, nicely carried tail, good mover all round. Sire of the RBCC. CC.

2nd: Denham's Ch. Scottsbairn Duke Of Ross

Big dog who moved better than the lovely dog in 3rd. In good coat, well boned, OK in topline, pleasing head and expression.

3rd: Deacon's Ch. Carac Most Definitely Cassencarrie

Good Citizen Dog

1st: Sleight's Cassencarrie Bobby Vee

Strong dog, very soft in coat, think it probably needs coming out. Pleasing head and expression, strong backline, well set tail, good bone and body.

Minor Puppy Bitch

1st: Marshall's Dun Eideann First Edition

Truly scrumptious puppy, beautiful head, correct length and strength of muzzle, sound true front, good forechest, excellent body and rear for age, moved out truly and stylishly, very promising indeed. BP & RCC.

Puppy Bitch

1st: Allen & Morgan's Inzievar Red Gold

Touch flat on top, but she moved nicely, pleasing head and eyes, OK in front, neat quarters, in fair coat. Needs time but should mature well.

Junior Bitch

1st: Shore's Swanwillow She's Hot

Moved smoothly and soundly, neat impressive front, bone and feet, pleasing head and domed forehead, well set ears, nicely bodied and powerful rear. Would like a bit more drop off towards tailset but in immaculate coat and condition.

2nd: Denham's Dentgate Summer Breeze

Tail tucked under and her nails were very long. Good bitch for strength of build, excellent outline and better over croup than above. OK in angulation, nice hard back coat, lovely expressive eyes.

3rd: Kinsey-Morgan & Hislop's Inzievar Gold Effect
Res: Sleight's Cassencarrie Madelaina
VHC: Brookes's Berdinbrook Ecco

Postgraduate Bitch

1st: Ray's Dentgate Sweet Symphony

Presentation could be better and she has a lot of soft hair. Back coat reasonable, lovely head and beautiful eyes, neat ears, fair front, well boned legs. Feet rather stained. Moved very well indeed.

2nd: Heywood's Cloverwood Day By Day at Schalulleke

Lovely type and quality, correct size and shape, lovely head and pigment. Standing looked a real star but unfortunately would not go properly in the ring, a pity.

Limit Bitch

1st: Tinsley's Cloverwood Sizzling Gold

Little upright in shoulder but was the best mover, pleasing head and expression, correct body and topline, short strong legs, well set tail, neat rear, good coat.

2nd: Booth's Cloverwood Candlelight

Best of coats and presentation, not too much soft hair, lovely hard back coat, lovely head, body and bone, good size. Just tends to look a wee bit dumpy in profile. Reasonable mover. None of the rest could cope with the ring.

3rd: Kinsey-Morgan's Inzievar Gold Edition
Res: Morris's Pennywave Amaryllis
VHC: Bromley's Mishahda Tempting Touch

Open Bitch

1st: Tinsley's Ch. Cloverwood Lemon Drizzle

Certainly scores on temperament, presentation, coat texture and sheer love of life, moves as if she means it, has an enchanting head and expression, excellent body and muscletone, good legs and feet, really good quality and excellent type. CC & BOB.

2nd: Chapman-King, Eriksson & Hislop's Ch. Inzievar Gold Touch

Not quite as much slope to upper arm as 1 and not in her best coat. Can move out well and is quite sound and very true. Well angulated rear, correct topline and slope off of croup.

3rd: Walkley's Hendell Angel Of The North over Churchoak
Res: Deacon's Cassencarrie Miss Grace at Pennywave
VHC: Hunter's Puddockswell Hootin' Annie at Etsill
